Right here, right now: DELURKING THREAD!

Postby EsylaMcSassy on Tue Mar 12, 2002 2:27 pm

Now I know with any good message board, there are a few lurkers...people who read the message board but don't post for one reason or another. Well, in honor of AP's birthday, I'm calling this the Delurking Thread!
Usually "tell us about yourself" threads seem to work good for delurking, so I'm doing a classic "right here, right now" style thread from days of yore.

<b>Right here, right now...</b>
<b>Wearing</b>: Dark blue jeans, ska shoes, a red and black striped shirt, black button-covered hoodie, blue scarf. er, white socks.
<b>Hearing</b>: The Stereo - New Tokyo is Calling EP
<b>Eating</b>: Nothing, I'm in the library
<b>Drinking</b>: Nada, see above
<b>Wishing</b>: It was the 21st and finals were a thing of the past
<b>Doing</b>: Posting around waiting for my art history class to start
<b>Feeling</b>: Apprehensive, coz I am a few videos behind on my telecourse class :
<b>Wanting</b>: Some orange juice.

Come on kids, delurk yo'selves!

edit: cooooooooooooooooooooooode!
Code: Select all

Wearing: Gray shirt and jeans.
Hearing: Caribou -- the Pixies
Eating: nope, finished dinner a couple hours ago.
Drinking: Cola.
Wishing: I had already studied for my Samuel Johnson exam tomorrow. Or that I was able to concentrate enough to do so now.
Doing: I should draw my comic. I have the script, and after the previous continuity fiascos, I don't want to fall behind this early.
Feeling: Not. Quite. Motivated. Enough.
Wanting: the ability to write and draw Forsooth on paper the way it seems in my brain. Heck, the ability to write anything to the best of my ability. Or something.

I should probably update my signature.

<b>Hic et nunc --</b>
<b>Wearing</b>: old state high school Latin competition t-shirt, jeans, old shoes, headphones
<b>Hearing</b>: The Clash, "The Guns of Brixton"
<b>Eating</b>: naught
<b>Drinking</b>: cola
<b>Wishing</b>: my scanner worked.
<b>Doing</b>: wondering whether Sarah just forgot to update her site, or whether I really <i>am</i> Turnip. ("But, Nelly, I am Turnip!")
<b>Feeling</b>: A lot more self-satisfied than I deserve to feel, given that I haven't done anything clever or impressive recently.
<b>Wanting</b>: Hm, maybe this is where the scanner thing goes. But i already wished for that, so when it shows up, could I also have several thousand readers a day? Or failing that, a robot to draw backgrounds? I'm telling you, those stick figure comic people sure got something right... draw a line under the characters to suggest the floor, that's what you call "detailed". It's hard enough for me to draw the same character in the same way twice, now I have to fill in the backgrounds the same way, and orient the characters properly within them? Athena, spare me.

<b>In this location at this time...</b>
<b>Wearing</b>: Same thing as last time, minus the shoes.
<b>Hearing</b>: Elvis Costello, "Watching the Detectives"
<b>Eating</b>: Still nothing.
<b>Drinking</b>: I ran out of soda, and I'm too lazy to go out and get some kind of replacement beverage.
<b>Wishing</b>: I had gone to sleep tonight. Oh well, I only need to survive two more hours.
<b>Doing</b>: Hm, that lurker seemed pretty spurious. Singing along with the music -- "he can't be wounded, 'cause he's got no heart..." Not too loudly, of course. Don't want to confuse the neighbors. Staying awake. Working on character pictures/descriptions for some kind of nonexistent cast list for Forsooth. I've got Jim and Anne done so far... six (seven?) well, I forget how many left to do.
<b>Feeling</b>: Tired. Still annoyed with the scanner. Mostly tired.
<b>Wanting</b>: Another soda. The ability to draw characters -- heck, I'm not even asking for the ability to draw other people's characters, my own keep eluding me well enough. A better design for Thor -- with the new characters looking so much better than the old characters and the old characters vastly improved to look as good as the new characters (the new Jim alone raises the artistic level of this comic strip by at least two notches -- Jim is a very minor character, actually not even necessary to the strip now, but I'm keeping him around because he just looks so damn cool. I merely wonder what the heck I'm going to do with him. Also, I think I've fallen in love with Julia, despite the fact that she's a) evil, b) fictional, and c) a crude caricature drawn by me. Just the insomnia talking there.) -- and who still looks like crap? Why, the protagonist of the whole thing, of course. I will admit that I haven't gotten Tim to look much better. This is only natural, as he was the protagonist of the old strip. Yeah, I've tried all I can, and I can't figure out how to make this design for Thor look good without completely changing what he looks like. Funny -- I remember when I liked the design for Thor better than any of the other characters. I'm rambling. I hope I don't do this in class. I'll stop now.

<b>Right here, right now...
Wearing:</b> Jammies still, a red shirt Aaron designed in high school, shimmery blue jammie pants, my fuzzy orange "muppet" toe socks, a goofy grin
<b>Hearing:</b> why does my family make noise and get up and talk and yell all night long until i have to get up in the morning at which point they've all left for work or whatever?
<b>Eating:</b> my traditional college breakfast food, tatoe chips and gummy bears
<b>Drinking:</b> the other half of my traditoinal college breakfast meal, Dr Pepper in a can
<b>Wishing:</b> this lingering, tormentous, evil semester would just finish for crissakes, and that i could see my boy more often, and that i wasn't a part-time lurker
<b>Doing:</b> painting my nails eggplant purple, wishing i'd done laundry so i cold wear my plaid pants, ditching Calculus <b>Feeling:</b> sleepy since i can't get a full hour of sleep without interuption around here, pouty about homework, missing Aaron too much
<b>Wanting:</b> uhh...guess?, and more games to play when i get bored, and not to go to any classes today, and to just win some lottery jackpot large enough that i won't have to work so i could just finish my godforsaken degree and then make movies for a living
